First, you may want to make a backup of your profile folder. It contains not only your current bookmark list, but a folder of backups. But these are not saved forever. To back up Firefox, see Backing up your information (you can copy your entire profile folder somewhere outside the Mozilla folder).

The following article has suggestions for recovering bookmarks: Lost Bookmarks | Troubleshooting | Firefox Help.

Any luck?

Version 3.5.2, if that's what you really are running, is not secure. You should update at least to 3.5.19, and preferably to a newer version.
